I'm more than happy to stop "banging the drum" if you're happy to stop bringing it up as a line of attack.No I didn't say it was only true in said case.
If you read it that way it's on you.
I've now said 5 times that was not what I meant.
Just watched the entire video to check. This is a lie.Really no-one posted malicious claims?
Not the whole Jimquisition video posted earlier in this threat which contained claims about how Scott wanted people dead or wanted to kill them?
No, I didn't ask for that nor want it. Don't accuse me of shit I'm not doing.Or are you trying to get me in a catch 22 where I need to show a person doxxing Scott to show people doxxed Scott thus helping actually spread those doxx and risking trouble myself here for that?
...A few lines ago, you insinuated I was being dishonest and malicious, didn't you?
So... we can't criticise anyone, then. Because criticism is "politely calling them a bastard", and that's not allowed. You're outlining a set of rules that disallow any and all criticism.Because it was trying to get said developer to join in on mob action or show support for the mob.
Same as if the anti-Ghandi mob demanded a person put #Ghandimustfall in their twitter bio.
Just because I can politely call some-one a bastard doesn't mean I'm not still calling a person a bastard.
Mary Whitehouse always tried to present her side as being the polite and proper side vs the uncouth / nasty / impolite people who opposed her.
It was an illusion of civility in the end.
The response to it chose to call it out for the illusion it was.
As for the "mob action" comment: this was a single comment, from a single person. There was no "mob" on the blog at that point. What does a single comment need to do in order to be construed as part of that "mob action"?
....Hey, you're disagreeing with me on this forum right now. You're just one guy, but I can just as validly say you're "trying to get me to join in on mob action or show support for the mob".
What's the fucking difference?
...Because he responded to the comment with hostility, which is against the terms and conditions of the blog. That was specifically why.Except those trying to cancel Uncle Bob are more than one person.
The interaction with the 1 person lead to another person and more people (the subreddit moderators) banning said developer.
